Someone on the Romanian team ratted his teammates out. It's what we call a bait and snitch.

From what I hear, the problem of doping at the World Angling Championships is pretty acute.

I read that as World Aging Championship and was instantly intrigued.

As a Romanian I say good for those Romanians. That's what I call home lake advantage and poor preparation on the fishers from England. Even the article mentions that the Romanians didn't do anything against the rules so it's just losers being haters.

Frankly, I think you're being obtuse. Stop and think for a minute, you'll know I'm right.

Those Romanians are a bunch of bassholes.

/The Romanian fishermen, not Romanians in general.

I'm not sure which is most embarrassing. Being beaten by a doping Romanian, or admitting you're a competitive angler.

Whatever, England is just trolling.

I think there should either be unrestricted garnishing, or a single Olympic standard mayonnaise.

Wait, there are rednecks in Romania?

We call them gypsies. (jk)

But Romania has a lot of fresh water lakes and rivers and fishing is quite popular activity. And while the Danube Delta has been mistreated the past 70 years or so, it still has quite a lot of fishing in the area. (my dad grew up in the area and loves fish although he never took me fishing).

I would assume that this tactic isn't illegal because no one had tried it yet?

Also, don't big tournaments in the US have practice rounds and competition rounds on different parts of lakes to avoid these issues?

I'm not a big fisherman but the few times I've gone the first question everyone asks is "what are they biting on?". Seems to me that the British were arrogant and thought they could win with no problems and didn't bother to do their research. At least 2 other countries adapted and got the same bait the Romanians were using.

my first thought upon reading the headline was WTF angling/fishing is more about skill than raw strength so how would doping help then i read the story and i was like WTF ? Brilliant plan and successful i would not be surprised to see the trick the Romanians used banned after this.

That's the NEW Hottness for International Sport, if another country has a player or players that are better than the ones from your country, accuse them of "doping"

Since most people are too Dopey themselves to understand what this actually means you can just throw it out there and damage some reputations.

Right, because there aren't pro fishing tours in the U.S. or anything, or even a major chain of stores called BASS PRO SHOP.

Part of me wants to say well done, jolly good wheeze, the other part thinks it's a somewhat hollow victory.
